David Short


David Short was born in Nottingham in 1940 and was encouraged to pursue his interest, and obvious talent for art during his early school years. He later attended the Nottingham School of Art.

David painted as an amateur for several years followed by a number of years as a semi-professional. He spent a great amount of time in Devon and Cornwall studying the landscape, the sea, and inshore boats. In 1972, he achieved his ambition to become a full-time artist.

David has always felt the need to vary his subject matter. He believes the variety keeps his work fresh and adds to its collectability. Initially, his reputation was built around his marine work but his portfolio now includes landscapes, beach scenes and scenes of Tuscany.

David’s paintings are much sought after by discerning galleries throughout Europe and by private collectors worldwide.
